Lots of members still travelling ...

So, Iris on Blog this week. 

Jenny reminded us that the QuiltNSW Show is on next week, Wednesday 19th to Sunday 23rd at the Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour.     Five days of all things quilting, stitching and crafting. 

Excellent progress with the traditional raffle quilt:   Christie and her team of helpers, ironed, then ironed again, went shopping for wadding and then got down to the job of pinning it all together. 



Show and Tell: 

Marie K has been super busy this week, with three quilts for show and tell:

This little cutie for the Grace Centre Newborns


These two 'toddler-size' quilts for Robyn Jo to deliver to Amelia House


Note the counting theme!


Chickens are in!

Although we call ourselves a 'quilt' group ...   just look at the other various 'stitching' activities in progress on Thursday:




Happy stitching, until next  week.

June Community Day

It was an exciting day for the Hunters Hill Quilters to see Christie putting the raffle quilt together and there was lots of Show and Tell.

Beryl R. who broke her finger a few weeks ago, needed something to do so she made a quilt for Barry the Dog who we are told is not terribly fussy about the quality of the quilting:

A busy day at the office

Hello Everyone,
Alison here. I thought that the blog was a bit late this week and then remembered that I an responsible for it while Judy is away. 
It was a very busy day, perhaps because the cool weather is here at last and we feel more like quilting.
All the blocks for the traditional raffle quilt are finished and some of us are putting them together this week. It promises to be absolutely beautiful.
Sally admired a quilt that Carolyn was making and was overjoyed when Carolyn presented it as a gift to her on Thursday. As Kathy commented, it looks like something that Sally would make but it would take 20 years:
